French Skincare Spree

I have heard lots of good things about French skincare brands recently so this evening a made an order from Le Guide Sante (Online French Pharmacy but they ship to UK). I do not need any more new skincare as I shamefully have a mountain of different lotions and potions to use up in my bathroom...but they were having a sale so I had to take advantage!

I ordered a few large bottles of the cult beauty secret amongst professional make-up artists and models: Bioderma Crealine H20 cleanser which is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin and eyes and promises to remove all makeup (even waterproof mascara) in one swipe. Unfortunately they don't sell this cleanser in the UK but the deal was two 500ml bottles for £13.50 - which is a huge saving! 

I also noticed that Avene Thermal Spring Water (300ml) was reduced to £4.64so I added that to my basket as I’ve seen many raving reviews from Beauty Bloggers about Avene, and the Thermal Water is the brand’s best-selling product so I’m intrigued to give this a go.  

I wanted to order Embroylisse cream but Le Guide Sante didn't stock it unfortunately so that shall be next on my shopping list. I shall let you know my thoughts when I've had time to test them out. Let me know if you're a fan of French Skincare? If so, which products would you recommend?

Postage to the UK is £20 which is a bit steep, so my tip is to bulk order to make it worthwhile! 



  1. I did enjoy browsing the French pharmacies when I went to Paris, they have some real gems - the Bioderma is excellent and I do love the the Avene spray.
    If you are around London Screenface in Covent Garden stock Embroylisse.

  2. you can get these products on e bay new, i get them on a regular basis and ive not had any problems, cheap postage too.x
